One of the reasons I don't think I could ever see myself hooking up with strangers right off the bat (aside from strong religious beliefs/upbringing) is a fear of STDs. Yes you can always ask the woman if she has it (i wouldn't be afraid to ask her despite the possible negative backlash), but there are always liars out there or even girls who are completely unaware themselves. I just want to know how you guys handle this? Aside from obviously wearing protection or just straight up asking for both of us to get tested, kissing can pass them too....so how can I run game on her and find out at the same time without sounding insulting? I guess what I'm asking is it possible to build attraction/comfort/escalation and still avoid (specifically saliva exchange) kissing? Lmao. Do I just say: "sorry I don't french kiss during the first week"? Just seems really lame IMO. Please help, am I being extremely paranoid? Thanks in advance.
